True, but he was just signed to a four year deal and they really like him. He will cost more than he should because Holland and Babcock like the guy. Plus they have done the leg work on a contract. Throw in the local aspect he has with Detroit and you wind up paying a premium on a guy you shouldn't. I don't want to use the Gaustad overpayment, but they will want some nice things, it won't be as cheap as most people think.
